95 Days ago

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Puradyn Filter Technologies Incorporated (OTCQB: PFTI), a global manufacturer of oil bypass filtration systems, today reported unaudited results of operations for the second fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2019 were $468,525 compared to $1,152,462 for the same period in 2018, a decrease of (59)%. Net sales for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019 were $951,518 compared to $2,038,202 for the same time period in 2018, a decrease of (53)%, which is principally attributed to a few customers delaying orders due to the rapid decline of market certainty and the volatility of oil prices, especially in the oil and gas segment that began in November 2018 and continued through the second quarter. 

Gross profit, as a percentage of sales, decreased by (78)% in the three months ended June 30, 2019 from the same period in 2018.  Loss from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $(262,375) as compared to an income of $89,540 in the same period in 2018.   Gross profit, as a percentage of sales, decreased by (70)% in the six months ended June 30, 2019 from the same period in 2018.  Loss from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $(540,517) as compared to an income of $127,500 in the same period in 2018.  

The Company reported a net loss of $(361,528) or $(0.01) per share, basic and diluted, for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to a net income of $8,872 or $0.00 per share, basic and diluted, for the same period in 2018; and a net loss of $(728,668) or $(0.01) per share, basic and diluted, for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to a net loss of $(27,871) or $(0.00) for the same period in 2018.  Basic and diluted weighted average shares used in the calculations for all of the 2019 and 2019 periods were 69,016,468 shares. 

Key business highlights from the second quarter include:

  • Revenues in the quarter were negatively impacted by the continued delays in expected orders, especially from customers in the Oil & Gas category facing downward market trends, and while we believe these orders will eventually be received, it has become difficult to predict the timing.

  • We are nearing the completion of trials by two new customers who are leaders in the midstream segment. This is expected to not only lead to orders beginning in late 2019 but should open up visibility of our product’s viability throughout the segment.

  • We secured another major inland marine customer that intends to begin equipping their entire fleet in the third quarter and a major government contractor that manages the maintenance of generators at remote U.S. military operations.

  • We launched a completely updated website at www.puradyn.com including an e-commerce component to facilitate direct-to-consumer sales.

“Our second quarter results were impacted by the continued delays of anticipated orders from both existing and prospective customers within the drilling and pressure pumping segments which continue to face market volatility and uncertainty that has caused delays in capital expenditures,” commented Ed Vittoria, CEO of Puradyn Filter Technologies, Inc.  “However, we continue to make progress in growing other market segments, including midstream, marine and power generation, which will improve the future diversification of our business.”

The Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q is available from the SEC website at http://www.sec.gov or the Investor Relations sections of the Company’s website at https://www.puradyn.com
